BONUS Chapter brought to you by KingSpy, enjoy!
Before the man could see who was calling him, a white-gloved hand suddenly appeared in front of him, holding a spray bottle of an unknown substance.
Without saying a word, Kid sprayed the substance on his face.
Immediately afterwards, a strong sense of tiredness washed over him.
No matter how reluctant he was, his eyelids felt as heavy as a thousand pounds.
In just a few seconds, the guard collapsed to the ground.
“Hey! Frodo, what’s the matter with you?”
The sound of falling to the ground immediately attracted the attention of the guards on the left and right, and they gathered from the corner of the wall.
Mathison hid on the edge of the hole and listened carefully to the sounds they were making below.
It seems that not only the five people on the left and right corners noticed the situation here, but even the people in the corridors behind the corners on both sides were attracted by the sudden incident here.
However, they did not all come to check, only three people did.
At the same time, the monitors in the surveillance room, on the top floor, also noticed the anomaly.
The surveillance personnel immediately contacted the remaining guards on the top floor.
“This is the monitoring room, what happened there?”
“I don’t know, Frodo passed out like that all of a sudden.”
“Did anyone see what happened to him?”
“God, forgive us. Guarding this place is boring enough. Who would have the time to watch over him!”
The guard complained first and then continued.
“I guess he may have had heatstroke.”
“Oh, damn! Do you really have a brain inside your skull? It’s winter, and it’s even nighttime, and you’re telling me he might have heatstroke?”
“I’m not a doctor. How the hell would I know what’s wrong with him? He doesn’t look like he’s been hammered by someone. Only the devil knows why he fell to the ground.”
Mathison was speechless for a while. He didn’t expect that these gangsters were actually discussing such a matter. Shouldn’t they be quickly searching the surrounding environment?
With such a big hole on the top of their heads, anyone could be hiding inside.
Aren’t their defences a bit too lax?
But on the other hand, this group seems to be quite united?
“Maybe he’s hypoglycemic; I’ve seen people passing out as soon as it happens to them.”
At this time, a guard said thoughtfully, and immediately aroused the unanimous approval of everyone.
“Then what are we going to do, give him medicine?”
“No no no no, no medicine, he just needs a bit of sugar. Let’s just feed him some chocolate.”
“But we don’t have any chocolate.”
“I have a piece, but I just ate it.”
Mathison kept his watch on the guards, looking at each other in confusion.
“I heard you need chocolate.”
Suddenly, an unfamiliar voice broke in, and the source of the sound seemed to be overhead.
“Yes, if you have a piece, bring it.”
“Wait, who was talking just now?”
“I don’t know, I have never heard this voice.”
“An outsider? But we’re on the roof of the Wayne Building, and no outsider can come here unless…”
“Through the hole in the top of us…”
At this time, the guards realized what was wrong, and hurriedly raised their weapons to aim at the hole above their heads.
Only for them to see a strange guy with half of his body sticking out. As for why he looked strange, it was because this person was wearing a white suit and a gas mask at the same time.
It just looks weird…
“It’s an invasion…”
Just as the guard was about to warn the others who didn’t come, he saw the weirdo throwing down two objects that looked like smoke bombs.
When it was about to fall to the ground, it suddenly exploded, and thick smoke instantly enveloped the entire corridor.
The surveillance cameras were immediately blocked.
The personnel in the monitoring room saw that the situation was not good and immediately pressed the alarm.
The sound of a siren resounded across the whole building, and red lights flashed non-stop.
“No, it’s hypnotic gas!”
After inhaling a bit of gas, the guard on the top floor began to feel sleepy and could not do anything about it.
Soon, he fell to the ground with a thud.
“No, an intruder broke in!”
In the corridor on the right, a guard suddenly came out of the thick fog with difficulty. He leaned against the wall with one hand and shouted softly to the two guards in front of him.
It looked like he was badly injured.
When the two guards approached him unsuspectingly, he suddenly smiled mysteriously.
The “injured” guard instantly becomes active, grabbing the shoulders of the two real guards and pulling them back.
Caught off-guard, the two were flung into the range of the hypnotic gas, and immediately fell unconscious.
Mathison continued without taking off the guard’s clothes but swaggered to the top of the stairs in his disguise.
At this time, countless footsteps could be faintly heard approaching above.
Before the arrival of the large force, Mathison hurried to the first floor below.
There were very few guards on this floor, probably less than ten.
When the alarm went off, they ran towards the stairs, and as soon as Mathison saw them, he shouted that there were intruders upstairs, in large numbers.
Regardless of whether he exaggerated or not, the guards didn’t suspect a thing.
Then there was nothing wrong with what Mathison did. When the ten guards on this floor passed by him and ran upstairs, Mathison walked into this floor.
Judging from the upstairs’ layout orientation, Mathison quietly came to the elevator.
Seeing that the floor displayed by the elevator was the forty-fifth floor, if he remembered correctly, that was exactly the Wayne Building top floor.
Sure enough, in order to quickly reach the top floor, only a small batch of guards will take the elevator up.
So, the others can only climb the stairs.
It is not advisable to use the elevator repeatedly for transportation. First of all, the elevator can only transport several people at a time, and it is impossible to gather a few people after several round trips.
Secondly, the time difference between elevators getting up and down is long. If there are not enough people to get transported in the elevator, then there are still not enough people to be sent up the second time.
It’s like delivering food in waves.
In contrast, even if there are not enough people brought up by the elevator at one time, it can delay the time a little, and it will give them a preliminary understanding of the enemy’s forces.
Therefore, the elevator stopped at the forty-fifth floor, and it didn’t tend to go down.
Mathison did not know where to get a crowbar and pried open the isolation door of the elevator.
The bottomless elevator shaft appeared in front of Mathison.
Mathison took a deep breath.
He decided to go down the zipline of the elevator shaft to the bottom, where the underground parking lot is located.
Because the control panel of the power system is installed at the bottom of the building.
The countless monitoring equipment and agencies in Wayne Building will greatly hinder Mathison’s actions.
Unless the power is turned off, Mathison can’t do anything.
